After 2 homeless people killed under Baton Rouge overpass, loved ones mourn 'senseless' violence

By Jacqueline DeRobertis


A man and woman who were discovered shot to death this month under the North Boulevard overpass may have been homeless, but they weren't without families who loved and cared about them.

Now, their families want people to know that their lives had value as they try to process what happened on Friday, Dec. 13.

A resident walking along South 16th Street discovered the bodies of 53-year-old Christina Fowler and 40-year-old Gregory Corcoran Jr. around 1 p.m., resting beside an empty shopping cart near the roadway. The nature of Fowler and Corcoranís relationship is not known. They were still wrapped in their blankets, apparently shot as they were laying down.
